I have been trying to obtain a credit card or personal loan

Customer Question

I have been trying to obtain a credit card or personal loan from my bank but the application was declined. I am due to go away with my 12yr old daughter to Italy on 9th July she has been selected to represent Europe in a dance championship and has also been selected to represent England in the world championship in Germany in September 2014 but I do not have the funding - what are my options? I do need to travel with her!

Alex Watts : Do you know the reason it was declined please?
JACUSTOMER-5hvsg5l3- :

no they didnt give a reason apparently the application just comes back with a "Yes" or "No" obviously it has something I believe to do with the credit check performed!.

Alex Watts : Have you done a credit check yourself please?
JACUSTOMER-5hvsg5l3- : no
Alex Watts : I would try this.
Alex Watts : You can do this for free at
Alex Watts : You should then see why your bank turned you down.
Alex Watts : You can then try these companies

Alex Watts : Or you could try a pay day loan but these are expensive.
Alex Watts : Can I clarify anything for you about this today please?
JACUSTOMER-5hvsg5l3- : well i have been advised against payday loans because of that reason they are expensive!! so you have not really told me anything new! i was looking for some form of constructive, productive alternative as i am not running out of time! so really you have not been any help and i would appreciate it if my £36 could be refunded! as i am have limited funds but was willing to spend that had i been given a more productive service, but do not feel your short on line so call advise has been worth me going without so please refund my money. Thank you
Alex Watts :

I can only give you the legal answer, I can't just make something up for you.

Alex Watts :

It would be wrong to give you an incorrect answer.
